Brier Creek Country Club Wedding for Lauren and Renato in Raleigh, NC

Photo Credit to Kevin Seifert Photography

 

How much did we love working with Lauren & Renato?! Soooo much!  We met Lauren & Renato at small event in Lafayette Village about a year before their wedding and we immediately noticed and appreciated how excited they were to get married and they just seemed to smile all the time.  They ended up working with a few of the members of the NC Wedding Ring: Watkins Flowers of Distinction, Kevin Seifert Photography and us of course.  Brier Creek Country Club hosted their wedding and looked perfect as always!  Their on-site coordinator was Shannon and she was such a pleasure to work with and really catered to the clients on their wedding day.

Lauren & Renato’s music choices were a mix of very contemporary and casual like Haley Reinhart and Ed Sheeran to classic wedding music and great Latin dancing music.  Their wedding day was upbeat, emotional, incredibly fun and even better than they ever expected!  You’re going to love seeing all the happy smiling faces in the great photos from Kevin Seifert Photography below.

Enjoy married life and best wishes to Renato & Lauren!

We loved reading this review from Lauren & Renato

“Having All around Raleigh DJ was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. Eric Hodgden was our DJ and he did an amazing job. He was always willing to help and answer all of our questions we had during the planning of our wedding. He met with us a couple of times and followed up with emails fairly quickly. The day of the wedding, Eric did an incredible job by keeping everyone entertained with great music and announcements for our events in the reception. We couldn’t have been happier how our wedding turned out, thanks to the music provided by Eric. As some people said, our wedding was lit! We highly recommend booking All around Raleigh DJ for your wedding day! Thank you so much, Lauren and Renato”

Melrose Knitting Mill Wedding for Katy and Zach in Raleigh, NC

 

Photo credit to Melissa Desjardins Photography

Now, this was one amazing wedding!  Katy & Zach’s Mom contacting us about two months prior to the wedding because they were having troubles with the DJ they had contracted with originally.  Luckily, we had the date available and DJ Eric took charge and got to DJ for this amazing couple and all of their family and friends.  Melrose Knitting Mill is one of the area’s premier wedding venue.  Not only is it gorgeous but the amazing coordinators with Southern Oak Events really helped make the day smooth for us and fun for the clients.  Zach & Katy made it known from step one that ‘the party’ part of their wedding was incredibly important.  They wanted as much time on the dance floor as possible so we took care of all of the formalities early in the schedule so we could pack the dance floor for a few hours of nonstop dancing.  We were incredibly lucky to work with Melissa Desjardins Photography who was unbelievably fun and easy to work with and also provided us with her incredibly good photos.  In fact, she took so many great shots that we had to splurge and post much more than usual.  Make sure you check out her work below!  Our vintage mic looks great in any venue but it looked particularly great at Katy & Zach’s wedding.

Thank you and congratulations to the newlyweds!

The Barn of Chapel Hill Wedding for Sabrina & Rob

The Barn of Chapel Hill Wedding DJ All Around Raleigh DJ

Wow, did we really get to be a part of this good looking couple’s gorgeous wedding?!  We got to work an amazing team of wedding vendors but most of our interactions were with Alexia and Dana from C&D Events. It cannot be overstated how nice it is to work with the professional team at C&D.  We already had a ton of experience coming out to The Barn of Chapel Hill but every time we show up we are stunned by the beauty of it and the dedication by the owners.

Sabrina & Rob chose to let us provide the audio and microphones for the very sweet and beautiful wedding ceremony on the patio at The Barn of Chapel Hill.  Then the cocktail hour was full of drinks and games and music on the back patio while the couple went out for their portraits with Ally and Bobby.

Just before the grand entrance, we opened up The Barn, brought everyone in and the rest is history as you’ll see in the photos below.

Thank you Rob & Sabrina for letting us be a part of your wedding day!

Sitti Wedding in Raleigh, NC for Amy & Cody in the Jiddi Space and Courtyard

You know it is going to be an amazing wedding when the bride and groom choose a Johnny Cash song and a Jimmy Hendrix song for their wedding ceremony!  Cody & Amy were two of the most fun clients that we have ever worked with.  We got to meet with them several times and it helped to really get a good idea of their nontraditional (see: awesome) wedding ideas and favorite music. Amy & Cody chose. They chose to have their wedding ceremony and the reception at Sitti’s Jiddi Space and Courtyard and we provided audio for the ceremony as well with lapel microphones. The Jiddi Space and Courtyard at Sitti Restaurant is a hidden gem of a wedding venue.  It is located right in downtown raleigh and offers an outdoor courtyard as well as an indoor space just in case.   It turns out that ‘just in case’ was pretty important even though they had a tent covering the courtyard because the rain came down hard and fast about an hour before the wedding began but the amazing staff took care of everything so when the rain stopped ten minutes before the ceremony everything was in place to get everyone seating. Their photographer, Adam Chapin Photography, was amazing to work with and pulled off some beautiful photos of the bride and groom even with the downpour.

The wedding ceremony and reception were absolutely on point for Cody & Amy’s style and wedding vision!  It was fun, casual and a family-oriented celebration of them and their favorite people in the world. The dinner was amazing of course, the dancing was amazing and everyone had so much fun! Enjoy the photos below from Adam Chapin Photography.

Here is Amy & Cody’s review of All Around Raleigh DJ Company:

“Eric was one of the first people we hired for our wedding, and he really helped us go through the entire process. He saved us money on who to hire and who not to hire, recommended other vendors, and was a calm voice through the entire process. The day of the wedding he was amazing. He rolled with a couple of last second changes we made, and kept everyone dancing all night. He was great. You should hire him for your wedding.” – Cody & Amy

The Meadows at Firefly Farm Preserve Wedding for Dale & Jake

Dale & Jake by Kivus and Camera at The Meadows at Firefly Farm Preserve All Around Raleigh DJ

 

Like many of our clients, Dale & Jake live out of state so we planned everything electronically.  We have so much experience with this now that the process is pretty well refined and everything went off without a hitch!  Working with a wonderful planner like Amy at Knots ‘n Such always helps a ton too.  Dale & Jake chose The Meadows at Firefly Farm Preserve for their wedding venue. This venue is BRAND NEW and STUNNING.  This was only the second event their but you wouldn’t have guessed it because the whole amazing staff was prepared for everything and ready to help at a moment’s notice.  The rain may have been relentless and cold but these clients and their guests were so good-spirited, fun and ready to celebrate that it didn’t even matter. They had a wonderful ceremony inside the larger wedding space and then everyone came next door to The Green Room to dance and celebrate the second half of the night.  Check out the very impressive photos below from Kivus and Camera!

To start their reception, we brought the bridal party in to “Fire and the Flood” by Vance Joy.  Their guests were excited, loud and clearly ready to rock!  The amazing dinner by Fresh.Local.Good Food Group followed and then immediately after that we did the cake cutting and toasts. After toasts (really fun toasts btw!), we all watched as Dale & Jake had their first dance to “Ocean’s Away” by Arizona which was followed by “Stand by Me” by Ben E King for the Mother/Daughter Dance and the Mother/Son Dance to “She’s Always a Woman’ by Billy Joel.”  Now, we should say that all wedding parent dances are special but the song Jake chose for his Mom’s dance was a surprise to her and she cried on her son’s shoulder for the whole dance….we had to look away! At first Dale and Jake were going to give us playlists for dancing but after some thought, they decided that wanted to give us complete freedom to choose the music. We do appreciate the trust y’all!  Turns out that we got to throw this amazing couple one of the most amazing parties ever with a packed dance floor for two solid hours which was capped off with the very fun ‘Inspector Norse’ by Todd Terje. From Jake’s review on Google: “He helped take the reception from good, past memorable, and made it all the way to legendary occasion amongst our friends.”   Thank you to Dale & Jake for reminding us why we love our job so much!

Here are Dale & Jake’s reviews of our DJ service:

“”When “Africa” by Toto started playing during the reception, I knew we had found the right D.J. Every song was perfect and perfectly timed, and Eric listened to all requests and read the room really well. He talked to everyone and was a great emcee for the toasts. We loved working with Eric and would recommend him wholeheartedly to anyone else who’s looking for a wedding D.J.!” – Dale (Read this review online)

“”I got this.” These were the words Eric gave us in an email the night before our wedding. Let me tell you, he wasn’t kidding. He was absolutely phenomenal in every way. He wasn’t just a part of the wedding, but a boon to the wedding. He he helped take the reception from good, past memorable, and made it all the way to legendary occasion amongst our friends. If you need a DJ for any situation, All Around Raleigh DJ will be the best you’ll get.” – Jake (Read this review online)

The Barn of Chapel Hill Bridal Bash Open House

We were invited to come out for the first time and be a part of an amazing night at The Barn of Chapel Hill and it was so much fun! We were invited out by the pros at Magnolia Grove Weddings and Events who threw a wonderful open house Bridal Bash and really nailed it with all of the small details.  We joined a stellar wedding vendor team and treated the brides and grooms to be to a fun night of music, food, champagne, great lighting and even a little dancing!  The Barn of Chapel Hill is one gorgeous and unique wedding venue.  If you have not had the chance to visit yet then you need to make it out for a tour.

The good folks running the show let us have a little fun and show off our uplighting which we were very happy to do.  Take a look below to see how we painted the outside and inside of the barn in multiple different colors to wow the guests pulling up.

Check out the vendor team that helped make it special!
